Howard Lake | 11 September 2008 | News

There’s no stopping Enable Interactive, ranked the UK’s No. 1 digital agency earlier this year, the Bristol based agency has gone from strength to strength since it was co founded in 2003 by Matt Connolly and Darius Pocha. Winning major contracts against stiff competition from digital ‘super-agencies’ Enable’s profile has risen dramatically in 2008 with cutting-edge work for global brands like BBC, WWF, Microsoft and British Red Cross. As a result of recent client successes the agency has made a strategic decision to focus on three key markets namely sport, fashion and charities.
“The agency was in the perfect position for us to re think its future direction. With experience gained on brands like Speedo, Lipsy and Commes des Garcons and the audience and commercial insight we’ve developed, it made sense for us to concentrate our expertise and ensure we’re the agency of choice for brands in these sectors.” said Matt Connolly Strategy Director.
The agency’s work for leading charities includes Breast Cancer Care, War Child and British Red Cross. Recent wins mean that this impressive list now also boasts Greenpeace and Ireland’s biggest charity Concern Worldwide.
“It’s an extremely exciting time for us. It’s the innovation that’s propelling Enable forward – with the right people, the smartest industry thinking and a ruthless focus on quality, our clients are getting outstanding results time and time again.” Said Connolly
“With the significant increase in buzz surrounding Enable the agency now stands at 20 staff. Both Connolly and Pocha, both of whom came together from much larger London agencies have a hands-on approach to agency life and retain positions of strategy director and creative director respectively. ‘Everyone here is a specialist in what they do – our clients never have anyone mediocre working on their projects. We do things differently to traditional agencies – we encourage our people to have a life outside their jobs. That way the stay interesting and enthusiastic and have more value than the normal agency burn-outs working 25 hours a day. It’s partly these qualities that we feel makes the agency attractive to clients” commented Pocha,
Recent senior appointments include Amanda Milton previously Production Director at Carlson Marketing, Natasha McKenzie, previously at M&C Saatchi, Fergus Roche from Conchango and, and Ben Akin-Smith co-founder of Add Momentum.
“Enable has been at the forefront of digital innovation for nearly 5 years now and is well positioned for continued future success. We are proof that the traditional agency model can change. For the better. We have incredible clients; we deliver great, innovative work that we’re all proud of and often we’re working with brands who make the world a better place” concludes Connolly
